Monkey Tales Scarf
Origin Stories are often amusing tales explaining why the world around us is the way it is. Sometimes how a
single feature of an animal came into being is explained differently depending on the region the story is from. One thing all the Origin Stories seem to agree on is that once, monkey had a short, stubby tail. How it became long varies…pulled on by another monkey, hanging upside down in a tree over night to obtain wisdom, a rock placed on it while he tried to run away…but the end result is always the same, a long tail on all the monkeys.
This long scarf starts from a simple tab that morphs into an I-cord edging and uses increases and short rows
to pull self striping sock yarn into new directions. The loopy I-cord bind off allows you to weave that long tail through the edging to secure the scarf around your neck and shoulders.
